If you know one thing about liZ and I, it’s that we both love Mexican food. And liZ, well, we know that she is the queen of chips and salsa. She takes it to every family occasion. It’s a staple at Evans’ family affairs and maybe I should blame her for my family eating it at least once or twice a week 😉
One day, I am going to make her share all of her salsa recipes. Now that I think about it, she shared one back for Cinco de Mayo once. Yep, just found it….here is one of her chunky salsa recipes.
And as much as I love chunky salsa….I love blender salsa too. And the end of August when all the fresh garden tomatoes are here, I start to crave it even more. And the fact that you can make it in under 5 minutes in your blender is an added bonus (and maybe a reason that we have it will all our Mexican recipes).
Here’s the recipe I use. It’s a blend and taste recipe…and you really can add what you like and lessen the ingredients you don’t like.
Easy Blender Salsa Recipe
4-5 large ripe (almost over-ripe) tomatoes
1 jalapeno (you can de-seed it for less heat)
1 red onion
1 bunch of cilantro (you can do a half-bunch for less cilantro taste)
1 clove of garlic
salt to taste
Just coarsely chunk all the veggies and throw them in the blender. Whirl it up and you have the bestest, freshest salsa around. I think it’s one of my most favorite things about late August.
And then if you are anything like my family, you will have to whip up a second batch for lunch the next day. Happy chips and salsa eating!
